Weekly Photo Challenge: Illumination

This week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is Illumination.  Looking through my photos, I realized that things can be illuminated from different directions and sources.  It was tough…but I had to narrow my selections down to seven.

This photo was taken in the “Siq” at Petra, Jordan.

This photo is from a yearly event in Cincinnati called “Balluminaria“.  Unfortunately, I had not taken a tripod with me and the wind had picked up…so my photos weren’t as good as I had wished for.

This was taken in Peru…back in 2009.  I remember thinking…”Wow–just the small village is being lit up”!

During the holidays, The Cincinnati Zoo has a fantastic light display throughout the zoo and this is the entrance.

Light source – All Around


I believe 2013 will bring much clarity or illumination to all of us!
